  • “The lodge was superficially clean and there was visible mould in the main bathroom as well as the en-suite and along the skirting in both washrooms.”

    The toilets although looked cleaned on entering became discoloured quickly and the toilet brushes were disgusting.The listing said this was a luxury lodge and this was definitely not what I was expecting for the £1490 paid for the lodge. It was also damp and clothes coming out of the wardrobe felt wet at times. The floor was also uneven in places and disorientating to walk on. ...

    The toilets although looked cleaned on entering became discoloured quickly and the toilet brushes were disgusting.The listing said this was a luxury lodge and this was definitely not what I was expecting for the £1490 paid for the lodge. It was also damp and clothes coming out of the wardrobe felt wet at times. The floor was also uneven in places and disorientating to walk on. The Lakes were gorgeous and the weather was kind and we were lucky to be able to get to all the local places of interest and long walks. Area 10/10 but accommodation 3/10.

    - Mr Britto, July 2021

    Thank you for your feedback. We were very concerned by your comments and have discussed this with the professional cleaning company we use. As long-distance owners, we visited Owl Lodge last Friday 20-Aug in person to check the situation for ourselves. Whilst there was some discolouration of the tiling in the family bathroom and 2 small spots of mould in the bath edge sealant, there was no mould anywhere on the skirting boards in both family and en-suite bathrooms. The toilets are cleaned as standard at the end of the week of each letting, and their condition was fine. One toilet brush holder was marked, and both holders have been replaced. The Lake District is an area with high humidity, and as such there will be moisture in the air. However, we can confirm there was no evidence of damp in the lodge anywhere; clothes coming out of the wardrobe feeling wet must presumably have been put away wet. The floor is indeed slightly uneven in part of the kitchen; this has been checked and verified as sound. The listing on Sykes website describes the lodge as, "This cosy lodge has two bedrooms; one with an en-suite shower and a separate bathroom with a bath...," and rates it as "4 ticks / stars", but NOT "5 ticks / stars ...with a degree of luxury". We therefore feel your claim that "this was listed as a luxury lodge" is incorrect and your expectation was too high. The rental charge takes into consideration not only the lodge itself, but also its location on White Cross Bay park on the shores of Lake Windermere, with all the facilities that the park offers including swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym, restaurant and bar. Its location also means it is within easy reach of beautiful scenery and many attractions within the Lakes. We therefore feel that your "accommodation rating of 3/10" is excessively low and inappropriate. - Sykes owner relations
